So now I have to revise my answer b/c I think I just had a problem with peas. Ella had them for the first time tonight and 3 hours later woke up screaming with the worst gas. This episode went on for 20 minutes and she is now back to sleep. Anyone else have this with the peas? I think I will wait a month or two and try them again then.

Lasbeth I'm sorry Emily had that reaction. 20 minutes of gas pain, poor thing she must have been in so much pain
Funnily enough I was just reading this last night in my baby-talk magazine, it said to introduce a food very very slowly if it's had an affect (such as watery stools, gas etc). You could still give her peas but maybe half a tsp for a few days and then a full tsp, and then graduate to a couple of tsp's. This way it's introduced to your LO's system so slowly that she will have time to get used to it.
We just started prunes this week and I made sure to give G a much smaller amount than usual and he's done fine. Ever morning since he's had a blow-out though Prunes will definitely do that to ya though!

Lesbeth: We had the same thing happen with butternut squash. It was the first thing I tried, unfortunately. We tried it again Thursday afternoon and Friday morning after 4 weeks "off". It's still a problem, she was spewing and screamy and gassy. So we're tabling it again and moved onto acorn squash. She seems ok with it, though maybe a bit more gassy than normal. with the butternut, I called the pedi and he said that it was something she was intolerant of and to table it. I tried both Beech-Nut and homemade, but both are not good for her.
Bethany LOVES peas. Funny how some things bother some, but not others. I hope Ella finds a veggies she loves.

Thanks Emily. It happened again tonight and I gave her applesauce so what I did last night and again tonight was gave her a tablespoon and 1/2 of rice cereal. So maybe it's too much for her and she doesn't know how to stop so I have to stop her. Tomorrow night I will go back to one tablespoon and see if that is it and then I can try and introduce the peas again.
You are making your own, right?

Well, we found something she doesn't like. Chicken. The faces she made were priceless.
We'll try it again tomorrow. It could be she's just tired. She's a bit out of sorts from her big christening weekend and had major naps all day today. Too bad I'm a zombie too or I would have gotten more done.
So far we have acorn squash, yellow squash, sweet potato, green peas, applesauce, peaches, plums, avocados, bananas...I think that's it. Butternut squash is out, though eventually I'll try it again. I gave my other butternut squash to my mother as I figured it'd never be Bethany's favorite.
After chicken, we'll do carrots, then pumpkin, then green beans. Don't think we'll do anything new over T'giving. We'll have enough going on and I'm sure somebody will slip her something she shouldn't have.
I have a pumpkin question. Canned pumpkin, if you read the label and buy the right kind, is 100% pumpkin, no other additives. Can I just open the can, add a little water for consistency and then freeze in ice cube trays?
I think I probably can and was going to look it up, but haven't yet.

We have now tried a total of three things, so I feel like I can participate on this thread.
1. What have you tried so far? Rice cereal, avocado, pears
2. Have you had any troubles so far with anything? Rice cereal--upset his tummy and made him constipated. It's off the menu for now.
3. Does LO show a preference for anything yet? Pears. He gets so excited he forgets what he is supposed to be doing. He exhaled with joy and blew pears all over me yesterday.
4. Do you have a system for what you try next or just whatever sounds good at the time? I'm trying to alternate fruits and veggies.
5. Making your own or buying? If buying, what brand(s)? A little of both. I am doing my own avocado and will be doing butternut squash, but I also am buying, due to my busy schedule. I've got Beech Nut, Gerber, and Nature's Goodness--I think? I can't remember the brand at the moment. I'm not too picky.Beth (32) DH (33)

Is it o.k. to start meats now? I was going to ask at her 6 mo ckup next week? I have been wanting to try some of the meals I have that have meat in them? Just wondering what you all thought?
11-11-2008, 02:25 PM #20
I thought it was 9 months for meat? On the sheet my doctor gave me I'm sure it said 9 months.... I'm going to google it.
Mom2TJ, I choked on my water reading what your LO did yesterday with his pears! That's too cute.
I think I've created a problem and I don't know what to do. So I gave Gabe Gerber's vanilla pudding with banana. Well he barely opens his mouth to some of the food but when it's pudding it's like I've never seen his mouth open so wide. His hands are turning, his legs are kicking, he's got such a sparkle in his eyes ... he's making noises because I'm not going fast enough. That's cute and everything but now he really prefers the sweet foods. Last night he was eating cereal and peas (he used to love peas) and halfway through he started whining and I knew what he was doing. With each mouthful he would open up less and less and make this "eurgh, eurgh" noise. When he's done this before I've just caved and gotten a fruit out or the pudding and given him some of that on the tip of the spoon with the veggie and cereal on until his veggies are gone and then I've given him just a bit of the pudding on its own. Shall I just cut out the sweet fruits & pudding cold turkey? Have I created this or is this normal?? I feel bad, but I can't keep giving him the good stuff. Not sure what to do
